Manny tests positive for drugs, suspended 50 games

The headline says it all.

Wow.  This makes me very happy to be honest.

The Dodgers are 21-8 and are 13-0 at home.  This is a crushing blow.  Ramirez leads the Dodgers in batting average and is tied for the team lead in home runs.

Torre need's to stop peddling his magic hitting juice.

There's at least some justice in the universe. Something doesn't gel -- why would he (or any player) purposely take something for "medical reasons" knowing the said substance can very well lead to severe penalties? At least this news deflects some of the spotlight on A-Rod for the time being. Can we have more names brought out?

I'm sure there'll be other excuses along the way ("My doctor gave it to me and I didn't know what it was," etc.).

And what's a "personal health issue?" Doesn't his health affect his team? And wouldn't the trainer know about it? I agree with kongon. I want the other names on that list.

Yeah, I don't buy the "personal health issue" thing at all. It seems as if the drug that he tested positive for is typical among steroid users.
